Types Of Plants Guide
Wintergreen boxwoods have a medium to slow growth habit that makes them perfect for a low maintenance hedge or border. Wintergreen tends to be smaller than their cousin the Japanese Boxwood. These evergreen bushes look great all year round with fresh lighter colored leaves in spring that will fade into a uniform green with summer. Boxwoods are noted for their high tolerance for harsh conditions and their ability to withstand heavy pruning.
  • Zone 5 - 8
  • Full sun to part shade
  • Easy to grow/maintain
  • Evergreen bushy shrub that will provide uniform color throughout the year
  • Water regularly until established
  • Great for foundation, border, hedge and mass planting
  • Comes in a 2.5 Qt. pot
  • Fertilize in spring with slow-release granular fertilizer

What's the difference between the wintergreen boxwood and winter gem boxwood? Why wintergreen cost more?

Asked by Laura May 13, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. For Winter Gem, the foliage of the wild plant is a duller green than the English boxwood, and the growth is slower, but in improved varieties like 'Wintergreen' the plants are dense, with good winter foliage and they are very hardy. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. -The Home Depot-

Would these shrubs grow in zone 9 without dying?

Asked by Laura May 9, 2020
1
Answer

No, this is not suitable in zone 9.

How far apart do I need to plant these in order to grow into a henge? And would they thrive in a 6 inch flower bed?

Asked by Laura April 24, 2020
1
Answer

About 1 foot apart gave me a nice full looking hedge. The 6-inch box probably won't work. These can be trained decently tall. I have a waist-high hedge in front and in the back I have a knee-high hedge and neither would probably fit in something 6 inches wide. Maybe keep them trimmed back very small if you want something in a small area, probably be best to choose a much more compact slower-growing boxwood.

I placed two orders of 10 shrubs each about 2 weeks apart. The first order was satisfactory, plants about expected size and packaged well (3 stars). The second order was poorly packaged and plants were HALF the size of the previous order for the same price (1 star, poor value). Plants were all in good shape with decent root systems, but half-sized plants for the same price was very disappointing. Will stick with local purchases from now on.
